Now she can be different girl

Dear Annie: I’ve been seeing (and sleeping with) “Jordan’” for eight months. We met at the gym, and I asked him out because I had an amazing feeling about him. Since then, I’ve become totally infatuated. He is one of the kindest men I’ve ever met. I thought I saw a future for us. But […]

Letting him down easy

He’s feeling like a sucker

Dear Annie: I recently dated a woman who never offered to pay for a meal, a movie or so much as an ice cream cone. We went out several times. We’re both in our late 50s and earn good incomes. She says she won’t pay for things until she is in a committed relationship. I […]

It must be a great apartment

Dear Annie: I have been with “Joe” since his wife died nine years ago. The problem is, we have different styles of communication. At first, it wasn’t too bad. I have tried to analyze our fights to see what I could do differently or what we could do together to make it better. But I […]

Showing up empty-handed

Their friendship goes back 20 years, and they still regularly get together for a girls’ night out. My daughter attended all of their weddings. For each, she hosted a bridal luncheon. At her rehearsal dinner, my daughter presented […]

Stick to your health and the weather

Dear Annie: My best friend, “Clara,” and I have known each other for 30 years. We’re both retired and live in the same town. Neither of us has a husband. We talk on the phone every day. We get along fine, except we have never been able to talk politics. If I don’t agree with […]

The squeaky wheel gets the refund

Dear Annie: I have a problem with one of my best friends, and I hope you can help. “Monique” and I recently split the cost of a hotel room so we could enjoy a weekend of shopping and relaxation. We experienced a few problems with the room, nothing major, but Monique complained to the manager […]
